Tap Water - Very Hard

I picked up a GH/KH test kit and thought I should test my tap water before I put my 75 gal tank together.

GH: 21
KH: 13
PH: 8.3

I can get the pH down with CO2, but what are my options for GH and KH. This will be a heavily planted. Are they ok or should they be lowered?

Thanks

Mark

Agreed. You should be fine with most plants.
There are certain ones that I can't grow like Tonina belem. But most are fine.
